Dear Susan,

if you are a teacher, then God help the next generation. Don't make me laugh! Frankly, if you get your information from such skewed sources as the ones you quoted, it's not surprising you are so hateful.

The Taj Mahal is not a mosque but a mausoleum, it is a dedication of a Moghul king to his wife and the most symbolic gesture of love and romance in the world. There is no evidence (unless you can produce) that it was build on the site of any previous structure (even ulta-nationalist Hindu's would not make such a spurious claim).

The Alhambra is a UNESCO world Heritage site, maybe you should go on the website, it may shatter some of your prejudice and bitterness.

During Saddam's time, Iraqi Christians lived in a secular country and not in a state of disorder and . They were considered Iraqi first and Christian second. Saddam Hussain even appointed a Christian (Tariq Aziz) as Foreign Minister. I think we both agree than the US invasion of Iraq has made the lives of Iraqi Christians considerably precarious.

The Hagia Sofia was a Christian church but before that it was a Roman Temple. Go away and read about it for your homework.

So christian refugees don't go to Muslim countries. Again you show the extent of your ignorance. Go away and read about the Southern Sudanese migrants (numbering some two to five million) causing Chaos in Cairo. How about the Chinese Christians in Indonesia or those flooding into the UAE and Bahrain.

Unfortunately for you, I am unwilling to give up my time in educating you. Just because you may be a teacher, does not mean you should stop learning!
